With an ever-changing legal landscape, it’s more important than ever to stay up to date on employment laws and best practices. Whether you are a business owner, human resources professional, or manager of other employees, I recommend selecting one or two HR e-newsletters or blogs to follow each week. This will be a 15-30 minute weekly investment that could potentially save many hours and dollars in the future. Here are a few of my favorites:
BLR Daily Advisor http://hrdailyadvisor.blr.com
Workforce Week http://www.workforce.com
HR Hero http://www.hrhero.com
Employment Law Information Network http://www.elinfonet.com
This practice may not guarantee you’ll stay out of court or avoid an audit by the Department of Labor, but it should go a long way to preventing some of the common triggers that get employers in trouble. And, you may find a few best practice ideas that can help improve performance and morale in your organization.
